I'm not hearing much buzz about DBpedia, but it's made a slight comeback.
It's pretty exciting stuff - only I can't think of a use case for it at the moment. I don't really need to see pictures of "Apocalypse Now" actors; but maybe population of towns in NSW I can see.
Unfortunately, Wikipedia isn't complete; because I know there are more than 37 towns in NSW! But it's a start. And it's a good one.
